Sustainable Strategies: Integrating e-learning, leadership inquiry and classroom practice | Kōrero 14 2015

Resources and Discussion through the Years

Use these resources and Korero to gain a clear picture of leadership of e-learning planning over the past three years.

  • Using the e-Learning Planning Framework – this is useful in guiding us through the use of the e-LPF
  • The e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF) online tool is live for all schools/kura on the Enabling E-Learning  (EEL) site with full instructions and support material. Once you have created your account you can then manage your schools surveys within the e-Learning Planning Framework online tool. The MMeLPF /te Rangitukutuku (Maori Medium eLPF) tool is also available as a download on EEL.
  • Korero from Previous Years

It will be best for all new posts to be in this thread so they are easier to follow.

2015 Korero 14: Sustainable strategies: integrating e-learning, leadership inquiry and classroom practice

During the last three years the discussion in this strategic Korero has focused on leadership learning about the e-Learning Planning Framework and how to use it. (See just above)

We think this year’s NAPP cohort is stepping past this level of understanding and needs to focus on teaching/learning transformations that are going on as school leaders apply inquiry learning and use the e-LPF. 

Professional learning using teacher inquiry

In this Enabling e-Learning video, Chris Allen, principal of Sacred Heart Girls' College, and Mike Wilson, ICT cluster director, share why they chose to use a teacher inquiry model as a focus for professional learning and why that approach has been so successful.

Leadership inquiry and use of the e-Learning Planning Framework should fit well together.

  • Use the elements of leadership inquiry and the e-Learning Planning Framework to support discussion on how they have in specific instances brought or are bringing about transformative change to teaching and or leadership practice
  • Explain how specific parts of the inquiry cycle, shown below, and the e-Learning Planning Framework have worked together for you and your school

    Kia ora Koren,


    I like what you have said about it being just as important for teachers to learn through doing as students.  ANd yes, sometimes you just have to leap in and DO IT!  Planning is important!  The more planning that is done, the better prepared teachers will be, but how can we know that we are planning in the right direction unless we also have some practical experience to guide us?

    We are a member of the Kaikohekohe cluster (part of the Manaiakalani initiative0 and are currently trialling chromebooks with our year 9s.  Next year we will be fully chromebook for Years 9, 10 and 11.  We are lucky that this initiative comes with the full support of people on the ground in our school and PLD to guide us.

    This year our reading/literacy initiative has been the major focus of our teaching as inquiry.  i have started a leadership inquiry with our lead teacher for the Chrome initiative and this is proving to be very successful as we work through our trial.  I have used the model provided for us as NAPP members for our own leadership inquiries. Next year I imagine that the Chrome initiative will become the main focus for our teaching as inquiry and that the frameworks provided on these pages will also prove invaluable as we work through the year.

Join this group to contribute to discussions.
